Two more Orthodox crosses have been destroyed in Russia, this time in southern Siberia’s Altai Territory, local police said on Thursday.

Officials in Pervomaiskoye told a local news portal that they would replace the crosses at the entrance to the village in the near future.

“The village’s residents were outraged that someone dared to destroy a symbol of the Orthodox faith,” the head of the village administration said.

Five other crosses were vandalized across Russia in late August and early September
